Reproductive isolation among sympatric cryptic species in marine diatoms.
Pseudo-nitzschia is a marine cosmopolitan genus of chain-forming planktonic diatoms. As for the vast majority of phytoplankton organisms, species identification within this genus mostly relies uponExpand

Global diversity and biogeography of Skeletonema species (bacillariophyta).
Recent studies have shown that the cosmopolitan diatom Skeletonema costatum sensu lato is composed of several morphologically and genetically distinct species. To assess whether the separate speciesExpand

Intraspecific diversity in Scrippsiella trochoidea (Dinopbyceae): evidence for cryptic species
Abstract Scrippsiella trochoidea is a widely distributed neritic dinoflagellate that produces calcareous resting cysts. We assessed the level of intraspecific diversity at the molecular,Expand

MOLECULAR PHYLOGENY OF THE GENUS CAULERPA (CAULERPALES, CHLOROPHYTA) INFERRED FROM CHLOROPLAST tufA GENE1
The genus Caulerpa consists of about 75 species of tropical to subtropical siphonous green algae. To better understand the evolutionary history of the genus, a molecular phylogeny was inferred fromExpand

Marine protist diversity in European coastal waters and sediments as revealed by high-throughput sequencing.
Although protists are critical components of marine ecosystems, they are still poorly characterized. Here we analysed the taxonomic diversity of planktonic and benthic protist communities collectedExpand

Phylogenetic relationships of the 'golden algae' (haptophytes, heterokont chromophytes) and their plastids
The phylogenetic relationships of the “golden algae”, like all algae, were rarely addressed before the advent of electron microscopy because, based upon light microscopy, each group was so distinctExpand
